Description

Outdoor GPS Shop – The expert’s view

The Garmin Montana 610 is the ‘large screen’ GPS unit from Garmin, with a 4-inch (diagonal) screen, also comes with a built-in battery, which can be removed and replaces with 3 x AA batteries.

It comes with a built-in electronic compass; this gives you far greater accuracy at small movements and it also has an altimeter that works from the air pressure (giving you improved accuracy).

It has been Garmin’s large screen GPS unit for several years now and it is a proved outdoor GPS unit.

The easy-to-use touch screen user interface means you’ll spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time searching for information. Adventurers love the extra-large display of Montana that provides great readability due to big data fields and clearly visible map features. Both durable and water resistant, Montana 610 is built to withstand the elements. Bumps, dust, dirt, humidity and water are no match for this rugged navigator2.

Keep Your Fix

With the new high-sensitivity GPS and GLONASS receiver, Montana 610 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its location even in thick forest and deep valleys. The advantage is clear — whether you’re under heavy tree cover or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on Montana 610 to help you find your way when you need it the most.

Go Anywhere

With an array of compatible mounts, Montana is designed for use on bicycles, in 4x4s, on boats and as a handheld or for convenient everyday navigation in your car. Use the optional auto mount with City Navigator maps for spoken, turn-by-turn driving directions, or try out the optional rugged mount for your motorcycle or ATV.

Go Everywhere

Montana 610 comes with an 1-year BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription for great aerial images to enhance your navigation, in case you want more detailed information adding more maps to Montana is easy1. Load TOPO maps and hit the trail, plug in BlueChart® g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water, or load City Navigator map data for turn-by-turn driving directions. Or, transform paper maps into files you can download to your Montana with Custom Maps.

Navigate with Ease

The new Montana 610 features a Track Manager app that allows you to record, view and analyse your tracks in a very convenient and intuitive way. The handheld has key features for the outdoors such as a 3-axis tilt-compensated compass which shows your heading even when you’re still, without holding it level. It also has a barometric altimeter which tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you can even use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions.

Find Fun

Montana 610 comes preloaded with 250,000+ assorted geocaches from geocaching.com and supports paperless geocaching. This allows Montana 610 to store and displays key cache information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs. Once you want to add more caches simply upload the GPX file to your device and keep the hunt going.

FAQs

1. Does this unit come with batteries?

Yes, it comes with a Lithium-ion battery pack but can also take x3 AA batteries too.

The Montana 680 includes an 8MP camera – for high resolution geotagged pictures

 

3. What are each of the map options available with this unit?

 –              GPS Unit Only

–              With TOPO Great Britain Pro 1:50k

This is full GB at 1:50k mapping on a map card, which sits in the back of the GPS unit.

The TOPO PRO means that it is the latest map card from Garmin, giving you off road turn by turn routing within the National Parks, this means you can select a location many miles ahead and the GPS will route you via the footpaths to get to that location (like a car sat nav does).

Outside National Parks the GPS will navigate you in a straight line from waypoint to waypoint.

Don’t worry, here at the Outdoor GPS Shop we set the unit up for you so you can easily use these features and we even include a quick start guide so you can quickly get up and running with your GPS unit.

2 reviews for Garmin Montana 610

  1. 5 out of 5

    Stephen Heycock

    I changed from a Garmin Oregon to the Montana as I needed a larger screen, really like it. The other great addition compared to the Oregon is that it has a rechargeable battery which lasts well over a day. Nice and easy to use and thanks guys for setting everything up and for the instructions, great service.
